Tilapia Thursday

It is Thursday (meaning I have less energy than I did earlier in the week) and tilapia is on sale at Graul’s.  That made the choice for dinner this evening very easy.  This is one of our favorites – few ingredients, healthy and easy to fix.  Make it a staple in your house!

Tilapia with Butter Caper Sauce

Per Serving

  • 1 Tilapia filet
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • Salt, pepper and paprika to taste
  • 1 tsp butter
  • 1/2 tsp capers
  • 2 tsps olive oil

Combine flour with salt, pepper and paprika and dredge tilapia filets in flour.  Heat a non-stick saute pan over medium heat and swirl in olive oil.  Brown tilapia 3 – 4 minutes per side.  While cooking fish, in a small sauce pan, melt butter with capers.  When fish is cooked, spoon sauce over fish and serve.


  • Broccoli florets
  • 1 oz. parmesan cheese

Steam broccoli, 5-6 minutes or until tender.  Grate parmesan cheese over broccoli and serve.

I love to cook and love to eat. I work full time and have a family so managing good meals during the week requires organization. I'm hoping to share my weekly menu plans and recipes to make things a little easier for those who want to follow along.
